I checked on the mango seed I started a couple of days ago (First attempt) and the paper towel was all brown so I changed it out with a fresh one. That seed was dark brownish in some areas when I pulled him out. As I don’t know if this was normal, and I still had another organic mango left, I decided to have another seed going at the same time. Here are the pics from my seed number two!
This one was a lot easier to get out. Knowing where the to look for a seam helps so if you want to try this, maybe get a couple of mangoes so first one you can experiment on and if you mess up, you have a back up.
I scrapped at the narrow edges of the mango seed husk until I saw the seam. The first attempt I spent a long time cleaning the slippery mango and fibers off the husk. No need. Just use a butter knife and scrape at the sharp edge until you see what looks like a seam. If you can’t see it, try the opposite sharp edge of the husk.
